The casualties of the Iraq war, mapped

Well the last post in this thread was about 3 months ago. And guess what? It's about Iraq again!

So I was strolling in the Off Topic section...

Yeah one of these is especially not like the others. Turns out this links to an enigmatic, in more ways than one, forum titled

Naturally I've done all of you a favor and registered in order to extract the links, yet only the one in the middle is functional as the other two are unusably glitched:

Article Link, Data Link and the Unfortunately unusably glitched Full Screen Map.

The solution? Well that second link still manages to preserve the map. The map here is amazing, each point doesn't necessarily represent a casualty but rather an incident. Clicking on any will reveal a multitude of information:

But I can't for the life of me figure out how to embed it. So here's what I'll do: I'll just post a few screenshots here and those of you interested can visit the link for themselves or in case you do know how explain how I could possibly embed it, because for whatever reason the source of the map refuses to open on any page besides that one..

So here you go:

Overview of Iraq

The map's default location: the Surroundings of Um-Al Khanzeer Island and Baghdad University

Central Iraq: Baghdad and its surroundings

Southern Iraq: Basrah and its surroundings

Northern Iraq: Erbil and its surroundings

Casualties beyond the border: Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia

Casualties beyond the border: Turkey and Iran
I should have maybe made a third one for Iran but I especially wanted to add this to showcase how far beyond the borders of Iraq the conflict was able to reach.

Ruins of Ancient Babylon
